Israeli soldiers shot, Friday, a young Palestinian man with a rubber-coated steel bullet in Balata refugee camp, in Nablus, in the northern part of the occupied West Bank, after several army jeeps invaded it.

Media sources said the soldiers shot the young man, 27, with a rubber-coated steel bullet in his arm, during protests in the refugee camp.

They added that the wounded young man was moved to a hospital for treatment and was discharged shortly afterwards.

Several Palestinians also suffered the effects of teargas inhalation and received the needed treatment.
